What was the scope of their involvement?
Blue Chalk Media served as our full production company, so they worked with us from the beginning to end of each process. The casting, location, and communications were all handled by their team. Every spot where we filmed was arranged by them, including details with both land and restaurant owners.
Their team helped us storyboard the series and helped recruit the right cast. In addition, they coordinated with hair and makeup vanity teams throughout the process. Along with this, their team created a list of interview questions for each episode and edited every episode. They managed the entire pre- and post-production processes and produced two seasons of the show with us.
What is the team composition?
Matthew (Director of Development & Producer, Blue Chalk Media) was our main point of contact. Greg (Founder & CEO, Blue Chalk Media) was also involved in the process. They provided a full production team, including a director of photography, producer, and sound team for the project.
How did you come to work with Bue Chalk Media?
I wasn’t highly involved in the hiring process for Blue Chalk Media, but our company wanted a team with experience in documentary story-telling. Our goal was to find a company that knew how to combine beautiful camera work with in-depth interviews. Their skill set in these areas is what set Blue Chalk Media apart.
How much have you invested with them?
We worked with Blue Chalk Media to produce the two seasons between September 2017–December 2018. We’re still having internal budget negotiations to determine if we’ll be continuing the relationship.
What is the status of this engagement?
For both seasons, we spent around $50,000 total.
